How do I find out how an auction ended? Auction results are available by viewing [Closed Auctions] text link at the bottom of the page. After submitting your User ID and password you will get a list of items that you have sold or bid on. Selecting an item you bid on will give you the pertinent information, such as the winner (if it's you or ?), selling price, the bid history and the sellers contact information if you did win the auction.
What do I do if I can't contact the seller/buyer by e-mail? The registered users contact information will be included in the confirmation email message to both the seller and the winner when the auction closes.
What if the seller doesn't want to sell anymore? Although this does not happen that frequently, since normally sellers are eager to sell their merchandise, it can be disappointing when it happens. Keep in mind that although Tat2 Net Auction Bid cannot "force" a seller to honor the final auction results, you as the bidder can and should leave appropriate email to the Administrator and/or use the feedback feature to express your results on the user. Keep in mind that many people don't access their e-mail daily, so they may not be intentionally ignoring you if you don't hear from them.
Every time I make a bid, it says I was outbid immediately. What's wrong? Actually, there is nothing wrong, this is the "proxie" placing other bidders' next increment over yours because his/her maximum bid is higher than the max bid you just posted. Basically, an earlier bidder specified a maximum bid higher than the maximum you just specified. When you confirmed your bid, the other bidder's "proxy" immediately placed a bid on his behalf, just enough to outbid your maximum, to ensure his position as high bidder. When you place a bid with a maximum high enough to outbid all other bidders, your proxy will protect your position in the same way.
Can I reduce or retract my bid once it has been placed? Not at all, you must be sure that you want to pay the maximum bid you have indicated, if the bidding goes that high.
Can I increase my maximum bid after I've placed a bid? Yes. Simply place a new bid with your new maximum.
What is a "Reserve Bid?" Some auctions may be run with reserve bids set. The reserve bid is the lowest bid at which a seller is willing to sell an item. The reserve bid is never disclosed to bidders. A seller might specify a reserve bid if he/she is unsure of the real value of his/her item and would like to reserve the right to refuse to sell the item if the market value is below a certain price. During an auction, an annotation will be displayed in the item information screen if the seller has specified a reserve bid and if it has or hasn't been met yet. The seller specifies the reserve price when he/she lists an item. This price should be above the minimum bid price. The auction begins at the minimum bid price. When a bidder's maximum bid is equal to or greater than the reserve bid, the item's current price is raised to the reserve price. At this time, the item information will indicate the reserve price has been met. The bidder is also notified that his/her bid met the reserve.
